A HUGE floating city is being built in the Indian Ocean – and it’s the first in the world.

The Maldives Floating City will have shops, restaurants and more than 5,000 homes.

Currently being built just a 15 minute boat ride from mainland Male, the city hopes to be a solution to the current rising sea levels.

The 500-acre lagoon will have all kinds of amenities, including hotels, bars and shops for tourists along with permanent homes.

Tourists will be able to get a residence permit to buy a house there too.

As many as 20,000 people will be able to live and stay at the floating city, along with access to schools.

Cars won’t be allowed, but buggies and bikes will be able to drive around the roads, made from white sand.

Don’t worry about it floating off – it will be “tethered to the lagoon floor” with all of the roads connected.

It hopes to start building in January 2023, with the first residents moving in by 2024.

However, the project will take around five years to complete.
